Invisalign for Teenagers

Clear Orthodontic Aligners Video

Invisalign Teen uses the same treatment system as Invisalign, meaning no brackets, wires, or any metal components. Invisalign Teen instead uses a series of clear, removable, plastic trays called aligners that fit directly against the teeth to shift them into their ideal positions. 


Benefits of Invisalign Teen

Invisalign Teen comes with all of the following advantages compared to treatments like braces:

  • More Comfortable: Because the aligners are smooth to the touch, they won't cause cuts and scratches on the inside of the mouth like braces do.
  • Easier to Clean: You remove the aligners to brush and floss, which means maintaining oral hygiene – and cleaning your aligners – is easy and convenient.
  • No Dietary Restrictions: With braces, you'll need to avoid sticky, crunchy, or gooey foods to keep from breaking brackets. With Invisalign though, you remove the aligners to eat, so you can enjoy all your favorite foods!
  • A Discreet Orthodontic Treatment: Invisalign aligners are almost impossible to see when worn. You'll never have to worry about braces during school pictures, prom, or any other major milestones! 

Designed Specifically for Teenagers

Invisalign Teen was designed with a number of features that are custom-made for the teenage lifestyle:

  • Blue Dot Wear Indicators: Each aligner has a built-in compliance indicator that lets teens themselves, parents, and your orthodontist know if the aligners are being worn long enough.
  • Eruption Tabs: Dr. Harrington can create aligners with special eruption tabs that hold space open for unerupted teeth.
  • Replacement Aligners: Each treatment course comes with 6 replacement aligners, completely free of charge.
